Free market capitalism is far more than economic theory

Free market capitalism is far more than economic theory. It is the engine of social mobility-the highway to the American Dream.
George W. Bush
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
Winston Churchill
The systemic incompatibility between free-market capitalism and the quality of democratic life and respect for human rights has to be modified to take account of such contextual variables as wartime, security threats, and the societal balance between entrepreneurial and working classes.
Richard A. Falk
Nobody spends somebody else’s money as carefully as he spends his own.
Milton Friedman
There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
Milton Friedman
Free-market capitalism is a network of free and voluntary exchanges in which producers work, produce, and exchange their products for the products of others through prices voluntarily arrived at.
Murray Rothbard
I would ask: Given the nature of free-market capitalism – where the rule is to rise to the top at all costs – is it possible to have a financial industry hero? And by the way, this is not a pop-culture trend we’re talking about. There aren’t many financial heroes in literature, theater or cinema.
Martin Scorsese
America’s abundance was not created by public sacrifices to the common good, but by the productive genius of free men who pursued their own personal interests and the making of their own private fortunes.
Ayn Rand
The black market was a way of getting around government controls. It was a way of enabling the free market to work. It was a way of opening up, enabling people.
Milton Friedman
I am favor of cutting taxes under any circumstances and for any excuse, for any reason, whenever it’s possible.
Milton Friedman
No one spends someone elses money as carefully as he spends his own.
Mark Skousen
Nobody spends somebody else’s money as carefully as he spends his own. Nobody uses somebody else’s resources as carefully as he uses his own. So if you want efficiency and effectiveness, if you want knowledge to be properly utilized, you have to do it through the means of private property.
Milton Friedman
The historical debate is over. The answer is free-market capitalism.
Thomas Friedman
We all too often have socialism for the rich and rugged free market capitalism for the poor.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Free market capitalism has done more for the soul of the human race than any other system. And it’s created the highest standard of living.
Chris Chocola
The Western societies which espouse free market capitalism survive by the pursuit of greed and, in their own way, like Communism, throw into leadership men and women (mostly men) who know how to gain, exert and manipulate power.
Davis McCaughey
There are different ways to organise capitalism. Free-market capitalism is only one of them-and not a very good one at that.
